Delhi government plans to set up smart boards

New Delhi

The Delhi government has started working on its plan to set up smart boards in 20,000 classrooms in the state government schools. In the first phase, the government is installing them in 16 classrooms in a North Delhi school.

The 16 “Smart Classrooms” have been set up at Shaheed Amir Chand Sarvodaya Vidyalaya located in Shankaracharya Marg. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, while reviewing these smart classrooms, said cameras will also be installed in these classrooms to record classes.

“These smart boards are equipped with state-of-the-art technology. This would not only make the teaching-learning process a joyful one, but also help children learn better. With the integration of technology, children will have access to all online learning resources. Along with this, modern cameras for recording will also be installed in classrooms so that live recording of the class can be done. These recorded videos can be further accessed by students and teachers for educational purposes, whenever required,” Sisodia said.

He further stated that the Delhi government has constructed more than 20,000 classrooms in its schools in the last few years and it plans to convert all of these into “smart classrooms” in a phased manner, as well as those under construction. He also said that teachers will be given “special training” to make better use of the boards.
